Acquia Hosting adds memcache support

On our quest to offer the best possible hosting solution for large-scale Drupal sites here at Acquia, we recently added support for memcache to our Acquia Hosting platform.

Acquia Welcomes Four Kitchens to Partner Program

I'm excited to announce this week at Drupalcon Copenhagen that Four Kitchens has formally joined the Acquia partner program as an Enterprise Select Partner.

For those who are not familiar, Four Kitchens is a premier Drupal development firm that provides a full array of services from technical architecture & design, through massively scalable deployments. We have had first hand experience working with their team on a number of projects and have had great experiences.

Recent Acquia Hosting Updates

The hosting team at Acquia has been busy! While we continue to focus on making Acquia Hosting the most reliable and scalable Drupal hosting service anywhere, we've recently made significant enhancements to its usability and to the data we provide our customers.

Acquia Hosting: an update after 8 months of Drupal hosting

Roughly 8 months ago at DrupalCon Paris, we launched Acquia Hosting. In this blog post, I wanted to give a quick update on where we are after 8 months.

Venti Drupalccino coming right up! Acquia Hosting's automated provisioning system

Acquia Hosting is designed to be a high performance, high reliability, highly scalable, and highly manageable Drupal hosting infrastructure. Our goal was to be able to quickly provision small and large sites, meet the enormous requirements of Drupal Gardens, and keep all of it running reliably, with a small engineering and operations team. It is easy to say that "the cloud solves all of that," and indeed cloud technology provides a substantial number of benefits.

Acquia Hosting Customer Hits 5,000 requests/second! (or Why I Love Load Testing...)

Who says Drupal doesn't scale? Certainly not Acquia!

A large global PR firm recently measured their Acquia-hosted web site performance to over 3 million page views per hour (or 830 pages per second). When including all content, that's 5,000 requests per second. Wow!

Drupal gave them the flexibility to quickly respond to events. Of course, the bottom line is customer success and they reported that it was one of their "best web launches... ever".

Acquia Hosting: Now with Video Transcoding Support!

Acquia Hosting now supports video transcoding! Several hosting customers had requested access to ffmpeg, and we're pleased to augment our industry-leading Drupal hosting service with this important capability. One of our current customers uses this feature to customize their videos to whichever format their end users desire.

We're always looking for ways to improve the capabilities, reliability and performance of Acquia Hosting. Please keep the suggestions coming!

Acquia Hosting Scales 10X for Major Music Festival

One of our newest hosting customers had a great success last week after moving their site to Acquia Hosting. They produce a major music festival being held in over 30 cities this summer.

They migrated their beautiful, Drupal-powered site to Acquia Hosting last week. One day later, tickets went on sale. Their traffic peaked at well over ten times what they'd led us to expect! Our monitoring alerts started going off about an hour before the tickets went on sale but well before the end users saw an impact.

NVidia using Drupal

NVidia recently launched their new Tegra developer community on Drupal. See http://developer.nvidia.com/tegra. The announcement of the latest Tegra 2 chipset was one of the major news items at CES earlier this month.

OpenSource.com launches on Drupal

Red Hat just launched OpenSource.com on Drupal. The site will focus on exploring what happens when the open source way is applied to the world, beyond technology. The site has 5 main channels: business, education, government, law, and life. In each channel, they'll explore how open source is having an impact on each of those areas. The content is meant to be very conversational and participatory, making Drupal a natural choice.
